Asking $15 plus shipping, I will accept offers, possibly trades as well.

Estate Sale find. I have too many projects and need to sell some of the ones that I know that I will not get to. I have not attempted to clean this one up, all I have done is take it apart for pictures.

The plane is 19.5” long, 2 7/8” wide and it steps lower in the back where the tote is. The strike button on the front is in pretty good shape, however there is checking started on the front and rear of the plane and two cracks at the mouth, please reference the pictures. I could not find a makers mark on the wood body of the plane.

The Iron says, Auburn Tool CO Thistle Brand with a logo in the middle, Hard to see in all of the rust. Iron is about 2 3/8” wide, 7 3/4” long and 3/16” thick at the cutting end and tapering back to 1/8” at the top. It seems to be spared rust where it was inside of the wooden plane for the most part.

I have more photos available, please ask if there in anything else or another angle that you would like to see.

Please PM me if you are interested in this plane.

I recently purchased a plane very similar to this with no iron. Any idea on where to find an iron? My plane was a Casey and Company, which later became Auburn Tool. From what I’ve found it is circa 1857. The wedge is identical to the one in the photo and measures almost 2-5/8 wide. The gap appears to require a blade/cap of about 3/8” thick.

They don’t make those tapered irons anymore, so you are pretty much stuck on getting them from the usual sources for used tools, eBay, Garage Sales, Estate Sales, Flea Markets, etc.
This plane is still for sale, the body is pretty cracked, but the iron should clean up well, make me an offer if you want just the iron.
